Definition: Closed angle glaucoma occurs primarily in patients who have a shallow space between the cornea at the front of the eye and the colored iris that lies just behind the cornea. As the eye ages, the natural lens behind the pupil grows and the pupil becomes smaller, restricting the flow of fluid to the drainage site.

If caught at an early stage and properly treated, closed angle glaucoma can be controlled. If not treated promptly, optic nerve damage can occur and other parts of the eye may develop secondary types of glaucoma.
